Mighty Tyop Hunters, you may stand down

The file of typos has been mailed to Baen. Many, many thanks to the Mighty Tyop Hunters! As per Tradition, your names will be listed on the acknowledgements page in the final, published edition of Accepting the Lance.

  1. So, a further question, if you would be so kind:

    What do you do about typos that were not discovered in time? Once the Kindle edition is available, it is easy for readers to submit finds to Amazon through a Kindle reader. Does someone from Amazon contact you for confirmation of a possible correction? Have you ever dealt with their process at all? Color me curious.

  2. I can’t understand why anyone would want to submit typos in a Baen Book to Amazon, which is, after all A RETAILER. The only thing they have to do with the books sell them.

    Once the book is published — this is my philosophy — it is a Thing. If it includes typoes, so be it. There is no such thing as a perfect book. Adopt the Japanese tea cup philosophy — it is the error that illuminates the perfection of the whole.
